Michigan State University Helps You Understand Vaping

Comparison Of The Health Risks Of Smoking And Vaping


So if you're a traditional smoker, the carcinogens

basically weaken the wall of your lung and

cause lung cancer and the hot air and other chemicals involved

cause you to have basically a non-functioning lung

where you have lots of air and very

thin lung tissue that doesn't really work.

This is not the case from vaping at least

from what we've seen in acute cases in young people.

What happens is that they get inflamation,

just like when you cut a finger you get a

little bit of blood and red around there.

The inside of their lungs essentially become

red, inflamed.

And once it's inflamed the lungs can't really

function like they're supposed to to take

in oxygen and blow out carbon dioxide.

They become non-functioning and you become

short of breath and then we have to put you

on a ventilator a breathing tube and a machine

to help support your lungs and in some cases

that's not enough and we have to put on this

version of cardio-pulmonary bypass or ECMO

and we have to keep you on it to let your

lungs get back and heal.

One of the good things that's happened in

the past two decades is that cigarette smoking

has been on the decline.

People smoke less and we know smoking has

all sorts of dangers.

That includes, not just getting lung cancer,

but having chronic obstructive pulmonary disease

or COPD which can lead to a life with living

with oxygen, heart disease and other cancers,

not just lung cancer because of the carcinogens

that are involved.

This has been a great public health victory,

getting people to stop smoking.

Do we really want to repeat what happened

with big tobacco by having it happen with

vaping companies?

I don't think so.

I think ya know we've made a lot of strides

in getting people to stop smoking so we should

do the same with trying to get people to not

ever to use vaping.
